Boys and Girls Basketball Look Strong Headed Into League
Boys' and Girls' Basketball begins Gold Coast League play tonight, traveling to Crossroads to take on the Roadrunners. Both teams look strong going into League, ending regular season play with win streaks.
Varsity Boys' Basketball finished the regular season with a two-game winning streak over the MLK, Jr. day weekend. Their first win came over Eagle Rock, 86-53. Kyle Beedon had an outstanding game, leading the Vikings with 41 points! Two other Vikings scored in the double-digits - Chris Hammond had 11 points and Isaiah Brewington had 10 points for the Vikings. Hammond and Brewington had seven and eight rebounds, respectively.
The Vikings second game of the weekend was a W over Independence High School (Bakersfield), 87-56. Five different Vikings had double-digit point totals in the game - Tony Fontana had 21, Beedon had 16, Ryan Trunkett and Hammond had 13 each and Jack Sloane had 11.
Varsity Girls' Basketball has had quite the win streak of their own, taking an eight game win streak into Gold Coast League play. The Vikings have hit their stride in the season, with many of their eight wins coming on lopsided scores. The streak started all the way back in December with a 44-29 win over Louisville High School. The girls got two more wins to close out the 2019 year - 44-29 over Archer and 64-27 over Yeshiva.
The new year saw the Vikings solidify their new dominance with a revenge win over Shalhevet. The Firehawks beat the Vikings earlier in the year in the Milken Tournament, 31-45. At the beginning of the game it looked like Shalhevet might walk away with the same results, the Vikings found themselves down by 14 at the half. Little by little the Vikings fought back beating the Firehawks, 61-53. Two freshman led the team that night - Maddie Holden had 25 points and Lyla Horowitz had 18 for the comeback.
Four more wins later - 53-33 over Louisville, 53-42 over Oakwood, 60-16 over Lake Balboa and 68-28 over Santa Clarita Christian - the Vikings are ready for a tough Gold Coast League.
Good luck to our Boys' and Girls' Basketball teams as they head into Gold Coast League play!
